The theory of argument comprehension described in previous chapters has been developed from the perspective of natural language understanding. Because of this approach, argument comprehension in OpEd is not considered as an isolated task but rather as an integral aspect of language comprehension. As such, OpEd’s process model involves the use of techniques for mapping input editorial text into an argument graph that represents and maintains the context of the editorial for subsequent question answering. This chapter illustrates those techniques by analyzing a detailed example of OpEd’s input/output behavior.
